April Talk: Climate Ireland
At 6pm on the 27th of April, the Irish Met Society (IMS) will host a talk by Dr. Barry O'Dwyer, senior postdoctoral researcher at Marine and Renewable Energy Ireland (MaREI), on Climate Ireland.
Dr. Barry O'Dwyer will talk about the challenges of adapting to climate change. The effort involved in adapting will be a significant challenge for organisations and it is essential that this adaptation moves beyond short term emergency and continuity planning. However, there will also be multiple benefits and the actions taken to adapt will be good for Ireland's environment, economy and society.
'Ireland’s climate is changing and the impacts of these changes are already being felt. These changes are expected to continue and intensify into the future. In order to avoid the adverse impacts of these changes and take advantage of any opportunities presented, it is essential that we now begin to adapt.'
The Climate Ireland initiative is being developed by MaREI and the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC).
